Filipinos are good at turning inflation and rising prices into comedy, as evident in these Tweets

Well, as everyone already knows (and feels), the Philippines is definitely experiencing a new all-time low (again).

The reason? Inflation.

Market prices are skyrocketing while the value of Philippine peso is recording its lowest value in history. That makes everything just seems too expensive, that surviving is becoming harder and harder each day.

Good thing Filipinos are resilient right? Out of all nations out there, we’re definitely one of those that have expressed extreme resiliency. Flood, typhoon, inflation, whatever it may be, we’ll find a way to survive. We’ve gone through so much as a nation that surely…surely the inflation won’t definitely kill us. We’ve pretty much mastered how to live through a crisis and get through our daily lives as if nothing’s happening.

We Filipinos just are good at making our tragic lives into a comedy. Here are 20 relatable Tweets displaying just that:

Yes, Filipinos are resilient. Inflation is only one among the social issues that we had to face, in one way or another. But that’s because, we were left with no choice. Surviving is the only way out. Well, it’s the sad reality we have to face for the mean time.

So fellow Filipinos, okay pa ba tayo? O gising na kayo?
